5:53pm: SPUD film contest
Who knows, it's food related right?

From a post on the vancouver community.....

"Hi everybody. In light of xaphnia's recent post about SPUD, which reminded me of this, I have decided to advertise PLAY SAFE, EAT ORGANIC, which is a video contest SPUD (Small Potatoes Urban Delivery) is currently running. Submit an amateur (or pro!) video up to 1 minute in length for a chance at one of two prizes worth $1000 in organic groceries delivered right to your door. For more info see PlaySafeEatOrganic.com.

To check out the available prizes go see SPUD.ca.

The contest is open to anyone within SPUD's delivery area (Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary) and will be open for videos until 25 have been received.

You can also register just to vote. So go check out the vids that are up and take a stab at making your own.

It's a viral contest so the name of the game is spreading the word. Once your video is up for voting (as soon as I update the site after you submit it) post it on your LJ, MySpace, Friendster, send it to your Mom, and get as many votes as you can."

5:01pm: a new beginning...
Ok folks, as can be seen by my seeming inability to post on a regular basis I am going to try something else. As I had mentioned earlier I am looking to start a recipe blog for my ideas and creations. This way others can try them and maybe even give me some suggestions for improvement if they would like. I was going to get a new place to do this but this sould work for now. Oh yeah, still going to post personal stuff every now and then but mostly it will be following this new trend. Right, hope that made some sense. recipes to follow!
